- Deploy the attached Alloy Applicant WAR (or the attached ICEFaces Applicant WAR) to Liferay.
- Add the portlet to a page.
- Reload the page.
- Click the Submit button (the one next to Edit Preferences).
If the bug is fixed, validation messages will appear next to each field showing "Value is Required".
If the bug still exists, the page will not be updated with validation messages.
When the Submit button is clicked, a POST occurs and the response content type is text/html;charset=UTF-8. The content type should be text/xml;charset=UTF-8. This seems like it is the reason for the issue.
This worked correctly in Liferay 7.0.5 GA5.
